Profiling Float Measurements of the Recirculation Gyre South of the Kuroshio Extension in May – November , 2004

  title={Profiling Float Measurements of the Recirculation Gyre South of the Kuroshio Extension in May – November , 2004},
  author={Shuiming Chen and Bo Qiu and Peter Hacker},
[1] During May to November 2004, 20 profiling floats were deployed in the recirculation gyre (RG) region south of the Kuroshio Extension (KE). With the KE and RG being in a stable state, most of these floats remained within the RG, resulting in a large number of satellite position fixes for estimating the velocities at the parking depth (1500 db) and a large number of temperature/salinity profiles for estimating the geostrophic velocities above the parking depth. The flows of the RG at… CONTINUE READING
